A330

Qantas QF 582 Perth to Sydney

Technically this was the first flight of an around the world trip spanning 5 countries and 12 flights although we had positioned into Perth from Sydney to commence. As we had plenty of time we caught bus 40 from Perth CBD to Perth airport and after checking in headed to the Qantas domestic Business Lounge in terminal 3/4.

Qantas QF 149 Sydney to Auckland

It is great now Qantas have scheduled A330 on this route. the business cabin on A330 is far superior to the Qantas Boeing 737 aircraft.

Traveling this route in Business provides dedicated check in area at Sydney Airport and access to the Qantas Business lounge air side. If you hold status there should also be access to the Emirates lounge in Sydney Airport.

Cathay CX101 HKG-SYD

We have flown this flight previously only last time the aircraft was an A330 instead of the B777 currently servicing the route and last time we were in economy.

Once again the selection of lounges in Hong Kong is outstanding. Flying overnight on the Cathay B777 in business is very private and comfortable. Inflight service is great sometimes you wish the flight could be longer?wink

Qantas QF149 Sydney to Auckland

Qantas flight 149 Sydney to Auckland equipment is now an A330 service replacing the B737 which used to operate this route. Benefits are there is now seating rows of 2 only side by side in economy for the window seat rows although there is a center row on these aircraft and in business class almost all these aircraft have the new Qantas business class seating featuring fully lay flat beds and increased privacy and direct isle access for every seat. The new business class seats are a huge improvement over the business class seats on Qantas B737 seating.

Fiji Airways FJ910 Sydney to Nadi

Recently flew Business class with Fiji Airways flight number FJ910 we were on a Qantas code share ticketed as QF391. The aircraft used was an Airbus A330-243  - MSN 1394 - DQ-FJT first flight date recorded for this aircraft was 19/02/2013

The business class seats are good in this aircraft, not as good as the likes of Qantas 330 or Cathay or Emirates A380 but ok.

Qantas QF566 Perth to Sydney

This was our first time in the new Qantas A330 business class seating and we found it to be very good. The compartments are private and comfortable with plenty of room. This inflight service was excellent with a good selection of food and drinks. The seats recline fully flat and there are 2 positions acceptable for take off and landing, an upright position and a slightly reclined position.
